    Recruits of Fox Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, climb up wooden beams for fast rope training May 13, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Fast roping simulates rapid deployment from helicopters and is also used to help instill confidence in recruits before rappelling down the 47-foot tower. Approximately 20,000 recruits come to Parris Island annually for the chance to become United States Marines by enduring 13 weeks of rigorous, transformative training. Parris Island is home to entry-level enlisted training for 50 percent of males and 100 percent of females in the Marine Corps. Fox Company is scheduled to graduate July 3, 2014. (Photo by Cpl.
